Wouldn't it have been nice if he showed up as a Canadian dignitary and not a failed drama teacher who thinks he's edgy and the kids think he's totally hip and cool. (add to that it looked like he watched a bad Bollywood movie and said to himself, "THAT'S INDIA")

The Conservatives started their first government by trying to deregulate our banks like the USA did that caused the Global Economic Collapse, luckily the political titans Jack Layton, Gilles Duceppe and Stephane Dion saved my home, your home and every Canadians home and businesses by stopping the Minority Conservatives from carrying through with this.

Then Canada entered a decade of darkness where, by the end of 2014, the unemployment rate was higher than at the end of 2008 (the year of the GEM). The labour force participation rate was lower than in 2008. The employment rate (the percentage of the adult population employed) was lower than at the end of 2008. The youth unemployment rate was higher than at the end of 2008. The share of total employment made up of full-time jobs was less than in 2008 — and the quality of jobs had sunk to its lowest level in a quarter of a century.

By the time Canadians tired of the corruption, scandals criminality and kicked the Conservatives to the curb in 2015 Canadians were left in a national, made by Conservative recession.

FAST FORWARD TO 2018
our economy has been resuscitated from a national recession in 2015 to dominating the G-7 IN economic growth. Our GDP was 4.5% the largest single gain in 17 years. Canada has the fastest growing economy in the G-7 by a wide margin. We are seeing the lowest unemployment rates in decades at 5.9%.The Liberals outstanding economic policies of lowering taxes on the middle-class, lowering taxes on small business.They have closed the tax loopholes for the rich and starting in 2016 budgeted $1 billion to investigate and prosecute the offshore tax haven cheaters, an effort that is expected to return $25 billion in fines, interest, and restitution for Canadians! Alberta, hardest hit by the recessions is again back on her feet leading Canadian provinces in GDP!The Liberals have accomplished all this while oil prices were is still in a slump and didn't bottom out until 2016 at $26 dollars a barrel!
The Liberal Social policies have negotiated a new a new health accord with the provinces (4 years under Conservatives without one), a new social housing program for the homeless of which Kelowna has a huge problem with, A new program to help the provinces with the fentanyl poisoning problems, A tax-free child benefit that is the largest social announcement since public healthcare and has lifted over 300,000 children out of poverty.We have seen pension increases for single seniors, big pay increases for the military and reopened and restaffed the veterans Affair offices, restored the lifetime pension option. Invested a Billion dollars in our oceans, Signed two free trade agreements CETA and CPTPP and held out until these agreements benefitted the average Canadian and not just the wealthiest 1%. Approved two pipelines, finished up Keystone. Restored the scuttled funding for women's shelters. The Liberals have accomplished all this and more with this year's projected deficit coming in an $11 billion underestimates! Now Trudeau is building on our relationship in India investing 3/4 of a billion dollars (this is not charity or a gift as the OP is inferring with his picture) that will reap dividends, and profits for all Canadians
This year, Canada was named the most influential country in the world with our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau named the second most influential leader! A reputation so bright that southern NATO countries offered to participate in the north (NATO responsibility is divided between north and south and countries never cross) in the Russian/Ukraine conflict, as long as they could be stationed with the Canadian contingents!
On the home front, here in Kelowna, our hard-working (and cool, former fighter jet pilot) local MP Steven Fuhr reports that the recent statistic from the central Okanagan Economic Commission indicate that household incomes have risen, labour force participation and housing starts are up, unemployment is low, more business licences have been approved, and record-breaking numbers of passenger traffic at Kelowna international continue to bring visitors to the Okanagan. Exactly what Mr. Fuhr campaigned on, bringing vitality, jobs and prosperity to our little corner of Paradise wealth goes beyond monetary measures, something Okanagan Okies (Me) haven’t seen in a decade!All this and Mr. Fuhr has brought more money to our community in two years than what we've seen in a decade!
1) People forget conservatives used to be fiscally conservative. After harper, they have become fiscally liberal and socially racist. Fascism is the only thing they wish to conserve.

^^^ Must be "fake news". I follow Paola on Twitter for my information [icon_lol2.gif]

Some people need to go back to school and find out what the word "invest" means. :smt045

(thank God those days of record unemployment numbers under Harper are over)

Well if you are going to let all those refugees into the Country then they need work!
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!

As expected, PM Vacuous Gesture is once again being laughed at by the international scene. This time for completely over-doing it with the outfits, all of which are being designed for the Trudeau family, presumably on the taxpayer dime (it's just money right?):

Trudeau family criticized for overdoing it on their traditional Indian outfits

Described as "too Indian, even for an Indian," the Trudeaus have commissioned some of India's most prestigious designers to outfit them for every photo op. What was perhaps most glaring was the juxtaposition between the Canadian political family and the Bollywood stars they met on Feb. 20. Sophie was in a cream-coloured and beaded sari, their children Xavier and Ella-Grace wore a sherwani and lehenga, respectively, and the PM donned a gold sherwani complete with traditional mojari shoes — while the Indian stars wore slacks and jackets.

"It's a little over the top," Vivek Dehejia, economics professor at Carleton University, tells Global News. "I understand on day one having to wear the traditional clothes, but now it's getting too much. It's very choreographed, ... these Bollywood-style outfits every public event he does. What does it say about the real purpose of the visit?"

Some people have taken to Twitter to express fashion fatigue, including National Conference leader Omar Abdullah.

LOL - describing those three dumb-dumbs as "political titans" made me laugh! Talk about revisionist (and horribly delusional) history. Thanks though, that did make my day.

Thank you justincase- I joined the forum recently and was surprised at how often green barbarian needs to name call / use put downs. Reminds of that kid in high school who uses the f word because he can’t think of anything else to say. Though I vote conservative federally and liberal provincially I don’t think we should characterize a group in demeaning terms just because they have different ideologies.

Did you read the stupidity in Justin's post? Just curious. It was out-right lying! Are you going to call him out on it? If not, why not?

I think JT got some really good stuff in his Hookah pipe while he was sitting around having discussions. One day next week, he is going to wake up and say, " I did WHAT?!!!"...... "You got to be :cuss: kidding me?!!!!"

Welcome to the forums! In regards to GB, there are some people that are worth just ignoring outright as they add nothing to any conversation and usually just derail conversations or hurl insults and baseless accusations.

If you click on their name, you can select “add foe” this will minimize all their posts so that you can follow the actual topic at hand.
